Landscape of Emotions


This wall painting is based on a piece of crumpled paper. Many Tints of grey, black and white match facets in the damaged paper. The pattern resembles a cross-section of granite or other crystalline rock, the starting point is something quite fragile. A crumpled piece of paper is usually thrown away, considered a failure. But often mistakes can open up new pathways. The “wrong” way may turn out to be much more interesting than the original, intended destination. The damage done to a piece of paper is irreversible, therefore it’s impossible to make it smooth again once it’s been crumpled. Similarly, other forms of damage, psychological, historical or geological, may also be impossible to repair; they remain hidden while at the same time giving shape to the visible landscape.
